Burg Kühlseggen

Burg Kühlseggen


Kühlseggen Castle, one of the most impressive moated castles in the region, is a moated castle converted into a private house with a large outer bailey, whose beginnings lie in the 15th/16th century. Until 1962, the moated castle was not inhabited, and its buildings fell into disrepair. Then these were extensively renovated and rebuilt to be used as a private residence.

Until well into the 19th century, the buildings of the castle complex stood on two islands: a high heaped one with the manor house and a second island on which the outer bailey stood. An outdoor tour is possible outside the moat on a circular path. The castle itself is privately owned and cannot be visited.

Dauerausstellung „Bestimmung Herrenmensch“ - NS-Dokumentation Vogelsang

The former NS-Ordensburg Vogelsang in today's Eifel National Park is one of the largest buildings of National Socialism and was a place of human contempt at that time. Today Vogelsang “Internationaler Platz” is a place that stands for tolerance, diversity and peaceful coexistence. But it is also a place of remembrance culture. The permanent exhibition “Purpose: Master Man. NS-Ordensburgen between fascination and crime ”gives an insight into the life at the NS-Ordensburg at that time.

Radioteleskop Effelsberg

With a diameter of 100 metres, the Radio Telescope Effelsberg is one of the largest fully mobile radio telescopes on earth.  Since its commissioning in 1972, the company has continuously worked on improving its technology (e. g. B. a new surface of the antenna dish, better receivers for high-quality data, extremely lownoise electronics) so that even today it is still considered one of the most modern telescopes in the world.
